Before the start of the season I predicted Packers vs. Ravens.

At this point I still believe the Packers will make it in the NFC. My runner up is the Saints, and don't count out the Giants either! Eli has been very impressive this year, proving he is indeed an elite QB. Barring any major injuries, they have a good shot. They are a clutch te.am

In the AFC, I like the Steelers right now, but I still have a lot of faith in the Ravens. I'm writing this during the start of the Jets vs. Pats game. If the Jets win tonight, I think they have an excellent chance to get to the Super Bowl. The Pats are not the team of old, but you never know with Brady. I just don't see them winning it all.

Niners vs Texans in the SB.

Alex Smith vs Matt Schaub?

Did I just write that?

seriously? they are both excellent teams this year, but do you really see them making it far in the playoffs?

i love jim harbaugh, and would be happy if they did make it though.

Best scoring defense (SF) vs best overall defense (HOU).

When the Ravens won it all a decade ago, they were the best defense, and only required a pedestrian offense to get the job done. Tampa was pretty much the same way when they got there.

"Best scoring defense (SF) vs best overall defense (HOU)"

yes however, they are both teams that are just suddenly playing well this year. both teams were relatively poor last season. the 49ers haven't made the playoffs in 10 years, and alex smith has never played a playoff game in his life nor has he ever played under real pressure. the 49ers have pretty much sucked for his entire career. the postseason is a whole different game than the regular season, as you know. i don't completely count out the niners though, because they really have been phenomenal this year. only the packers are playing better so far. and harbaugh has lit a spark with these guys, and could be the one to finally bring them some real success for the first time in awhile.

the texans though, i don't see them going anywhere. they're the only team that has yet to be in a playoff game. they are playing well now, but i think they will crumble in the playoffs. we shall see.

Hard to say. Every AFC team has sucked in one way or another so far this year.

The Ravens would be my next pick, but they have lost 3 games to teams who are a combined 11-16.

Houston does have a bye this week, and Andre Johnson is very close to returning. Give Leinart a chance. He's got an excellent manager of QB's in Gary Kubiak. Derrick Mason is also there to help him out.

Yeah, the AFC doesn't have any great teams this year. In both leagues, there are more good teams than there were last year, but no dominating teams other than the Packers. I think the Steelers have a better shot than the Ravens as of now, but we'll see.

As for Leinart, the guy has been a huge disappointment since his first year in '06. He was good in college, but has yet to prove himself in the pros, and he's had more than enough time. I would be shocked if he did well. The Texans might still squeak into the playoffs, but they have no chance at the SB anymore.

The Raven radio play-by-play guy is named Gerry Sandusky, leading to a rather awkward situation for him lately:

Haha, that's hilarious. "Gerry Sandusky watched fans and colleagues steer clear of him before Sunday night's game in Pittsburgh."

At least he got 800 new twitter followers!

I like the real Sandusky's defense strategy. Claiming he showered, horsed around with boys, and touched them (not in a sexual manner though), but is not a pedophile. Let's see how that works out when McQueary testifies.
